    Great usage of flame thrower socks

    Been deer hunting past 10 days and so one day, when the weather was going to change, I threw the flame thower socks in the back pack, black rock hat, couple of diff. pairs of gloves in,,weather was sucky,,and sitting in a tree stand all day with the wind blowing more than 45 mph at the top of a ridge with the temp dropping more than 20 degrees,,,,wearing light weight sorel boots,,I took the liners out as my feet were getting cold,,and wow...the flame thrower socks fit so perfect without squishing them much..to my delight..sitting in the stand with the flame thrower socks, and black rock hat on the bald head,,was so toasty,,I just had to pass on the way I was using them to everybody as if you have a pair of sorels,,and you take the liners out and wear the flame throwers in a situation like this, not using them to walk with or anything,,its a very great way to stand the cold temps and wind. Here in southern Indiana,,I was sitting at 900 ft alititude (which is as high as it gets anywhere in Indiana) where 2 oak ridges met,,rocking in the stand,,post toasty warm,,and did shoot a 225lb field dressed nice 8, pointer with muzzleloader ,wearing some of Paul's flamethowers,,and bragging to all my buddys about my feet being so warm. I sat in that stand over 5 days waiting on that buck, 37 hrs total, and each day the wind didn't get below 30mph,,with one day having tornado warnings and the flame throwers kept me going! Try it! Works great!

    warm feet make a big difference. Flamethrower socks are sure worthy of their name!

    Absolutely! from now on,,they go in my pack as I hunt! I have 3 diff. pairs of sorels for diff temp climates that I hunt out of and can interchange the inner felt liners from thin to thick,,but! The flame thrower socks will rock with each boot designed for cold to coldest climates,,depending on the lining thickness..when sitting on a stand,,it rocks to wear them and will be using them when needed during the month of december as here in Indiana, we have muzzle loading season for 2 full weeks, and the entire month almost including first weekend of Jan. for bow/crossbow final season before deer season is done for another year. The weatherman is predicting lots of snow for Dec/Jan for Indiana because of the strong La Nina in the Pacific so hopefully will get to hunt in the snow maybe.
